Trail was a bit muddy from recent rains. However, this was good trail to introduce my 7 year old to hiking. Easy trail for kids. Saw several hikers with dogs walking the trail.

This is a great trail to take your young ones and get them acquainted with hiking. I have 3 toddlers and they love this trail.

This trail is not well maintained. Waist high weeds overlaped into the trail most of the way. It had rained shortly before my hike, and the trail was muddy. In drier weather, this would be an easy leisure walk.
